Surgical skills and video gamesWritten by Ivo Mitsiev at in "Minimally Invasive Surgery".
Video game skill correlates with laparoscopic surgical skills. Training curricula that include video games may help thin the technical interface between surgeons and screen-mediated applications, such as laparoscopic surgery. Video games may be a practical teaching tool to help train surgeons.
In discussions with colleagues we compared many times the endoscopy (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) with a video game. The students found this talks very funny.
Now we have the "proof"!
So, dear surgeons, take a good computer machine and play! Play for the sake of your patients! :)
